Flow Measurement Technologies

ONICON offers a full line of insertion-style, inline and clamp-on meters as well as networkable BTU meters and flow displays. Our flow meters and temperature sensors are individually wet-calibrated, and all products are delivered fully programmed for your application and ready to use. This attention to detail simplifies installation and maximizes performance.

While we offer a full line of meters, ONICON is widely recognized for our innovative hand insertable insertion style flow meters. This unique design has advantages not found in other meter types. They can be installed or removed in a matter of minutes without the need for specialized tools. Our insertion meters are ideal for wet-tap installations where it is not practical to interrupt flow. They are priced independently of pipe size, making them and excellent value when installed in larger pipes. Use of our insertion-style meters simplifies periodic flow calibration and maintains traceability in measurement accuracy.
